With just over 1 month until Whiskey Live Dublin 2014 we are delighted to confirm that all the exhibitor stands are sold out in what promises to be the best Whiskey event ever held in Ireland. Midleton distillery will obviously be there showcasing their Single Pot Still range (hopefully, with a new release or 2) & Kilbeggan with the new Connemara 22 Year-Old & probably the new Kilbeggan 21 Year-Old. From Ireland we also have Bushmills, Tullamore Dew, Teeling, Knappogue Castle, Echlinville distillery, Blackwater distillery, Dingle distillery, Green & Yellow Spots, Irish Whiskey Awards, Jack Ryans, The Palace Bar, Alltech distillery, Walsh Whiskey, Dubliner, Glendalough & Celtic Casks (With upcoming releases Seacht, Ocht & Naoi). From Scotland we have Isle of Arran, Glengoyne, BenRiach, GlenDronach, Glenglassaugh, Gordon & MacPhail, Benromach, Bowmore, Auchentoshan, Glen Garioch & more. From Japan Suntory & Nikka. From the US, we have Alltech, Jim Beam, Bulleit, Jeffersons, plus more tbc. We have 6 whiskey masterclasses (2 for trade & 4 for consumers) with full details below with tickets very limited.

This year a number of top notch Dublin restaurants (Etto, Koh, L Mulligan Grocer) will prepare some bite size dishes to match some of the whiskeys in attendance. We’re also partnering with the cities top chocolate company Cocoa Atelier to do some Whiskey & chocolate pairings.

We have a special guest, Jack McGarry from The Dead Rabbit Grocery and Grog’s in New York who specialises in Irish Whiskey cocktails. In July 2013, he was honoured with the prestigious Tales of the Cocktail International Bartender of the Year award. Along with Jack, we will have 6 top bartenders from Dublin partnering with different whiskey brands and showing another side of Irish whiskey.

If you want to learn more about Irish & world whiskies or would just enjoy a great afternoon or evening of food & drink sampling then there is no better event than Whiskey Live Dublin 2014.

Part of the reason I took over the running of Whiskey Live Dublin was that the industry needs a successful event showcasing all that is good about Irish Whiskey. However, I also saw it as a good opportunity to raise some money for charity. My youngest Eoin has Downs Syndrome and gets some fantastic & much appreciated help from many people so we will use the event to raise money from both ticket sales & a well stocked raffle for Down Syndrome Dublin.
